Always updating the menu. Every meal I've had here is more than good, they have real depth in their sauces. And the beer has been off the charts. We can't wait until their back in full production

The only reason this review isn't one star is because the food was actually pretty good. But my experience was pretty bad from the start. I originally went there because I had a Groupon, which apparently was only usable for about three hours on Sundays (Brunch, not lunch) and I'd have left right then if it wasn't for the time pressure from being on a lunch break. I'm not sure if my girlfriend and I got there in between shifts (it was about 1:30ish) but we waited a solid 10 minutes before our waitress got to us, and then she needed to run back to get another menu, apparently she'd brought the wrong ones. The food was on the pricier side (I got a french onion soup, girlfriend had a burger) and I'm sure there are at least three places within a half mile of them where I could get more of similar food and pay less. So, I won't be going here again and would advise you not to either.

I had brunch here over the weekend. I was surprised how packed it was. I think I got the last available seat. It was at the end of the bar and a bit too close to the watress station-awkward. The bartender was excellent. I had the mac and cheese and it was very good. I brought study materials thinking I could hang out and study, but the place was just too loud. I'd go back again.

Hi Tia, Thank you for your recent review. Yes, the brunch traffic is very busy. I would recommend a mid-week lunch at a booth for studying. Please come again. Tom-

Great family restaurant with hearty meals, surprisingly large portions and a great beer list. Original home of Wormtown Brewery. Service has always been great and we have never left wanting more. The noise is the only downside, as it can get quite loud on a busy night. Our son is a Clarkie, so we're there quite often and always met with a smile.

Hello, Thank you very much for your wonderful review. We appreciate the loyalty of our local Clarkies and their families. Next time you are in, please don't hesitate asking to be sat in a quieter section (if available). Thanks again. Tom Oliver Owner/Operator

Had their catering food at an event, and loved it. Ordered 5 pans of entrees to take out to cater an event for 35 friends and family. Per their staff, ordered enough food to feed 50 (each pan feeds 10). It was a good thing we had some last-minute cancellations, or we would have run out of food, even with providing our own appetizers, salads, rolls and dessert. I wish they had a delivery option for catering on weekends, would have made our event run a lot smoother. That being said the food was very tasty, and I would probably order from them again, being mindful of more appropriate quantities.

I ordered the baked stuffed haddock and it was horrible. The haddock tasted like fish which means the haddock wasn't fresh and it was either delivered frozen or kept over night. Pepper was the seasoning of choice and to bake haddock on a chicken patty isn't a dish but a disgrace. Haddock is a meat of it's own and shouldn't be masked with pepper or a chicken patty. For sides I go mashed potatoes w the skins with them which aren't clearly fresh but, what do you expect especially since the haddock wasn't fresh. I also got mixed vegetables but, why the odd combination of lemon with carrots and yellow squash ? Unfortunately the only thing I really liked was the fresh bread with the side of butter.
